Fifty Years Since the 1967 Detroit Riots Meet the Cast Bringing the Civil Unrest to the Big Screen
It’s been fifty years since the Detroit riots rocked the city in the summer of ’67, but some of these themes feel all too familiar. Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow [The Hurt Locker, and Zero, Dark Thirty] tells the powerful story of one of the darkest moments during civil unrest in her new film Detroit.
